Andreas,
I too just listened. Beautifully played! Bravo.

Dear John-Lewis,
thank you very much for your appreciated comment! :D

Quote:
No one on record gets it right emotionally, except for Feinberg, who reveals/unravels this little prelude in all its magnificence.


That´s very interesting, I don´t know Feinberg and will look for his interpretation.

Quote:
But as I say, I find many subtle insights in your version, which insights, btw, i think in this very narrow instance can only be revealed when the piece is played at exactly the tempo you adopted.


I´m happy that someone likes especially my tempo. The feeling of tempo in Bachs pieces is a very individual and different matter as I often have to experience.


Quote:
So this is excellent stuff, because really no one hits the mark on this prelude, and you are already so quickly very close to the target.


Thank you, John-Lewis, I´m glad you like it and I think, we have a lot of affinity concerning our imaginations of Bach-interpretation.

Quote:
All of us are constrained by TIME, needless to say; so I can't comment on the little things, which little things are easy to correct anyway, and don't really matter much, in any case, when the soul you have already captured!


That´s exactly my point of view. Of course, there may be little things, but the subtleness and soulfulness of interpretation is the most important. Bothering is a performance without soul and with little things. :)

All the best, Andreas

One of the best P&F pairs of WTCII. Finely played, Andreas. Detailed and clear. I liked the fugue more. You seem to get a bit tired after the middle of the prelude. Not easy to handle, I would agree on that, so deep compliments on your performance.
BTW, I also listened to your g major pair and I would say your stereo image is too wide. Perhaps you could narrow it a bit, it would help glue voices better. Just a thought.

Thank you for your appreciated comment, Pantelis. And nice to read your lines here again.:D
O.k., I´m always glad about a tip concerning the technical aspect of my recordings. I will think about my stereo image. Thank you. I have definitively decided to rerecord the prelude as soon as I will find time for it.
